Watchtower False Prophecies: 1918 and 1925

1918 and 1925The Watchtower predicted wholesale destruction of Christendom’s churches for 1918 and the resurrection of the patriarchs for 1925. Obviously, they were wrong on both counts. Continue reading

The Great Pyramid: From “God’s Stone Witness” to “Satan’s Bible”

Satan's BibleAfter decades of proclaiming the Great Pyramid of Gizeh as “God’s Stone Witness” which verified its end times prophecies, the Watchtower reversed itself completely and denounced the Pyramid as “Satan’s Bible.” Continue reading

The Great Pyramid: “God’s Stone Witness” to 1914

God's Stone Witness“Pastor” Russell (Charles Taze Russell, 1852-1916), the founder of what eventually became the Watchtower Society, believed that Jesus returned invisibly and spiritually in 1874. This was to be the beginning of a 40-year harvest period which would end in 1914 with God’s complete overthrow of the nations of the world.

In his 1889 book, The Time is at Hand (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. II, 1908 edition), pp. 98-99), Russell wrote:

True, it is expecting great things to claim, as we do, that within the coming twenty-six years all present governments will be overthrown and dissolved; but we are living in a special and peculiar time, the `Day of Jehovah,’ in which matters culminate quickly; and it is written, `A short work will the Lord make upon the earth.’… In view of the strong Bible evidence concerning the Times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the Kingdom of God, will be accomplished at the end of A.D. 1914 (emphasis added).

He was convinced that measurements (in inches) of the main passageway of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh confirmed these end-times prophecies. In his 1881 book, Thy Kingdom Come (Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. III (1903 edition), pp. 313-314), he called the pyramid, “God’s stone witness.” Continue reading

The Resurrection: Where?

Resurrection WhereThe Watchtower teaches that the resurrection of the dead will be to two separate and distinct locations:

  1. Jesus and an “anointed” group of 144,000 Christian witnesses of Jehovah will be resurrected in spirit form and live in heaven. They will rule as kings and priests over the earth but will never come there physically.
  1. Everyone else who is raised from the dead will be resurrected in bodily form and will live on the earth, which will then be a paradise. This group will never go to heaven.

But let’s look at what the Bible says about this. Continue reading

The Resurrection: When?

Resurrection WhenAlthough Christians believe that people have souls that survive physical death, this is not the resurrection. The resurrection will be a reuniting of soul and body that will take place in the end times.

So far as we know, no one other than Jesus Christ has been resurrected yet.

The Watchtower disagrees. Continue reading
